Quentin, Tarantinofan: MediaPunch / face to face / Globallookpress.com
On the background of the conflict between Uma Thurman and Quentin Tarantino, journalists remembered about the interview that the Director gave to Howard stern in 2003. In it the filmmaker spoke out in defense of Roman Polanski, accused of raping a 13-year-old Samantha Gamer, writes Esquire.
Stern asked Tarantino why he supports “a crazy Director who raped a 13-year-old”. “He didn’t rape 13-year-old. It was statutory rape (statutory rape, a term of American law, meaning sex with a minor — primas’. «Tapes.ru»). He had sex with a juvenile. It’s not rape. I believe that this word meant something aggressive is one of the most brutal crimes in the world. You cannot just throw the word “rape” just so. This is how to call all around the racist word is not suitable for all cases when people use it,” — said the Director.
Tarantino said that the girl “she was asking for it” and intentionally met with Polanski.
Earlier in February, Thurman accused Tarantino that he made her to sit in the faulty convertible in the movie “Kill bill”. The Director responded, calling the incident a great mistake in his life. He also admitted that he was aware of the harassment, the producer Harvey Weinstein in relation to Thurman, and demanded that Hollywood businessman apologized to the actress.
In 1977 Roman Polanski was accused of raping American girls Samantha Gamer. The Director pleaded guilty and made a deal with the court, but then fled to Europe after learning that the judge may cancel the agreement and send him to prison for a long time. In 2017, nine more women have reported rape or abuse by the filmmaker in a minor.
